Mindfulness has become a popular tool to help people manage anxiety and stress and to increase focus and productivity in the busy modern world.
Smiling Mind provides personal insight from the perspective of two successful business people and founders of Smiling Mind, Australia's largest mindfulness non-profit program - with a community of over 1,000,000 users across it's platforms. The authors have both used mindfulness to help navigate the peaks and troughs of everyday life.
Based on their personal experiences and the mounting evidence showing the benefits of mindfulness practice, the authors demonstrate how to bring mindfulness to all areas of our lives including work, relationships, families and parenting. They explain what 'switching on" or 'being mindful" is and crucially, how it works. They explain how to use the principles of mindfulness to build a happier, healthier and more connected life.
Smiling Mind is full of ideas, advice, practical tools and inspiration to lead a life that is fulfilling, passionate and emotionally healthy and to pass those lessons on to our families and the wider community.
